BURBERRY PRORSUM FW2014/15 @ A Painterly Journey Mens Collection


BURBERRY PRORSUM FW2014/15 A Painterly Journey Mens Collection exploring the worlds of Ben Nicholson, Christopher Wood, Lucian Freud and Duncan Grant. Christopher Bailey juxtaposes the British tailoring heritage with bold geometric prints and modern exploded plaids. Time-honored construction UK tie looms and jacquared patterns woven in Scotland are used. Silk scarves and mesh shirts lighten up the heavy outerwear and gives an airy feel.
